Formed in 2003 by four boys from the northern outskirts of Vienna, Reverend Backflash delivers a sleazy hard / classic rock sound that is almost instantly likable. Not often that happens!
With a sound that comes across as similar to Guns n Roses, LA Guns, Kitty Hudson, Cowboy Prostitutes, Hardcore Superstar, with a little punk element thrown in there to give them a contemporary edge.
The songs are really strong, with opener 'Another Part Of Town' setting the picture rather well. This is a strong release for a debut cd! (The band have only released a couple of Eps previously)
The band are solid, obviously very talented musicians, and the vocals have that perfect raspy feel to them, perfect for this kind of music.
Highlight tracks include, Another Part Of Town, Bad News Alley, xxxx With Me, and Touched By The Underground.
Great songs from start to finish, a great debut album.
